~Old School Glamour FOTD~ Antipodean Beauties Challenge



I put this  together the other day intending it to be a 1920’s inspired look and, while I don’t think I really got there, I still liked it. I couldn’t make myself commit fully and try to cover and then redraw my brows because it’s a nightmare to try and cover brows as dark and thick as mine. I hadn’t used my Dior Golden Savannah eyeshadow palette in a while so I pulled that out to the do the look.


I really love this palette but I like a lighter shade to use as a lid shade and the middle shade in the palette is really just a gold glitter so I used the shade Bubbly ( a light gold) from the Stila In the Light Palette as my lid shade. I used the coppery shade on the outer corner, the khaki in the crease, the dark taupe to darken the crease (mixed with some black shadow) and the tan shade to blend everything out. I finished up the look with Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner in Cognac. If I had been going out somewhere other than the shops, I would have also added false lashes and mascara to the bottom lashes.




I used a mixture of Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Primer in Dark (love this stuff!) and Burberry Velvet Foundation on the skin set with MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Dark. I skipped blush because I didn’t want the look to get too heavy. In hindsight, I probably should have at least done a little light contouring. I finished up the look by using NYX lip liner in Auburn topped with Guerlain Rouge G lipstick in Gigolo.

      Thanks Olivia! I’m glad I finally managed to find a way to use the head piece. I bought it so long and just never found an occasion for it!
